There were two early standouts at Saturday's NHL All-Star Game Skills Competition—and while you might recognize their last names, they're a little smaller than your average professional hockey player.

San Jose Sharks star Brent Burns and teammate Joe Pavelski had their sons team up for the breakaway challenge at Bridgestone Arena while their dads skated alongside them.

Little Pavelski had the assist on the shootout goal buried into the back of the net by little Burns, who celebrated with quite the dance and a photo op with Dad.
